Mercer – Opium (Original Mix)
February has been an exceedingly busy month for Mercer. Following “Straight Up” earlier this month, Mercer has announced his impending tour with fellow French producers DJ Snake and Tchami, and the eternally esoteric Malaa. Now, Mercer has released “Opium,” the titular track from his forthcoming EP.
“Opium” opens with a pulsating groove before giving way to a percussive piano riff, bolstered by a melodic layer of heavily processed vocals. The song’s drop builds around a meandering serrated bass which endows the production with a virulent energy, while still maintaining the track’s buoyancy. Stream the single below and look out for Mercer’s Opium EP dropping next week.
